Awakening

Awakening

Let the tears fall until there aren’t any left.
Let your heartbreak into what feels like a thousand pieces.
For in this letting go, you are rebuilding yourself.
In each ending there is a beginning.

Don’t Worry

Don't Worry

Sunday Blessings,
Sharing some words of wisdom from an article I just read. These words deeply resonated with me. Although it is difficult to not be impacted or feel hurt by another persons behavior or actions, if we are to experience soul growth and continue down our spiritual awakening path then we mustn’t react to what others say or do. It’s really none of our business. Happy Day!

“Don’t worry about what people think of you. Of course you want to feel accepted and loved, and of course it hurts when people misunderstand us, betray us and reject us. But, so many of our problems begin when we start worrying what others think of us. Just remember that everyone is on a different level of understanding. Try to believe that when someone is hard on you it may have very little to do with you. People who are hard on others are usually very hard on themselves, and the pain they inflict on others is a reflection of the pain they inflict on themselves. But even knowing this does not make it easy.”

“Life is too short to waste time waiting for other people’s approval on how you live it.”
— Steve Maraboli

Goodnight Blessings,
I spent the day traveling out of town for a sweet friends wedding. It was wonderful to see this beautiful young couple affirm their love and commitment to each other. Weddings always make me feel hopeful. I just shared with a friend that I’m so grateful that regardless of life’s unsettling reality and constant challenges, I always see the best in people! I believe in good intentions and having an open and clean heart. I believe in forgiveness and compassion.
Love, Light, Joy, Harmony,
Namaste

True Self

True Self

“The truth is that the more intimately you know someone, the more clearly you’ll see their flaws. That’s just the way it is. This is why marriages fail, why children are abandoned, why friendships don’t last. You might think you love someone until you see the way they act when they’re out of money or under pressure or hungry, for goodness’ sake. Love is something different. Love is choosing to serve someone and be with someone in spite of their filthy heart. Love is patient and kind, love is deliberate. Love is hard. Love is pain and sacrifice, it’s seeing the darkness in another person and defying the impulse to jump ship.
The Great Kamryn

A friend of mine just shared the quote above. It is so true of how people interact in today’s society. It is so darn easy to discard relationships, whether it’s a marriage, job, relationship or anything else that requires effort and commitment to work it out. I responded to her message that I still believe some people were raised with a different set of values. Those who believe that loving others is painful and requires courage and sacrifice. A higher level soul will look at others with compassion and forgiveness. Those are the beautiful people who we need in our life, who will help us to grow and become more kind and compassionate. It takes a lot of effort to release ego and emotion and look through a new prism. We are all flawed. We make mistakes. We hurt others whether on purpose or without intention but I hope that I can continue to be a kind and compassionate soul, who sees beauty and light in others.

Goodnight Blessings,
Had an interesting in discussion in class today about expressing emotions and vulnerability. We watched a video of Brene Brown. She has been researching the topic of shame and fear for several years now. I’ve recently understood the meaning of what she’s talking about in her research. Society has forced us to hide behind technology, be afraid to display how we are feeling. We think we will be rejected if we open our true selves to others. The most precious gift we can give to others is our raw, naked, whole hearted self. I’ve been such a guarded person all my life, afraid to trust others, fearing I’m not good enough, not worthy of love and affection. These are just stories we tell ourselves. We are good enough, smart enough, strong enough. We just have to remind ourself. Especially when our heart is broken and we are suffering. This is our human story!

May all precious souls be brave enough to share their authentic selves to the ones they love. May they embrace you whole heatedly and if for some reason, they are not able to do that for you then understand that is about their story and not about your worthiness.

Love & Light

Hurt Feelings

Hurt Feelings

In life you will experience hurt feelings especially in those close relationships that mean the world to you. Usually, that is you clearing out your karma with the other soul. Although it is important to not internalize your feelings as that will only cause more pain and harm in the long run. Try to make an effort to clear the air with them and if they are unwilling or not in a place to do that with you then do your clearing with the universe and send them blessings. Having a compassionate heart who can forgive easily takes mindful practice. I’m working on letting go and forgiving a lot from my past. Some days are good and others are most challenging but one must start with the intention.
